David Letterman’s Take On Hillary Clinton’s Announcement Video

There have already been many comments about the vacuousness of Hillary Clintons’s announcement video (along with her entire campaign so far). Ruth Marcus called it “a Verizon commercial without the substance.” David Letterman had a unique take on it last Friday–video above and transcript below:

Hillary Clinton made her long-awaited announcement earlier this week to run for President. You’ve probably seen her website announcement, and this part was a bit of a surprise. We take a look at the announcement.
PERSON 1: “I’m getting ready for a lot of things.
PERSON 2: “It’s Spring, so we’re getting to get the gardens ready.”
PERSON 3: “I’m getting ready to retire soon.”
HILLARY: “I’m getting ready to do something, too. I’m joining Scientology. Learn how to unlock your inner power at Scientology.org.”

Letterman also had two jokes about Hillary Clinton in his opening monologue the same night besides this video:

“Hillary’s traveling through Iowa on a listening tour, to listen to the Iowa constituents. It’s a listening tour because if you want her to speak it’ll cost you $200,000.”

“Hillary’s in a van with a bumper sticker that reads, ‘If the van’s a rockin;, I’m deleting e-mails.”

I’m going to miss Dave.

    And still no word from you on AG John Chisholm’s vicious reign of terror in Wisconsin.  Exactly which “Liberal Values” do you espouse?

    You have me curious (although he is the Milwaukee district attorney, not AG). Doing a quick Google search it looks like he might be up to some nasty stuff if the stories I just looked at are true. I probably won’t have much time for blogging today (which is why I just put out a canned post just after midnight) and don’t have time to look more into this right now. Unfortunately all the links I found so far are from right wing sources which have a bad history of making things up. Do you have any links describing what the conservative sites are saying from reliable news sources? If the claims are true this also sounds like the sort of thing the ACLU would be interested in pursuing.
